Globe Wernicke Conference Table Sunburst Ellipse
Globe Wernicke Barrister Conference Table with Sunburst veneer top, large Ellipse.
Otto Wernicke designed his world famous “Elastic” modular stacking book shelf system in 1890 (patented in 1892). Taken over in 1899 by the Globe Files Company, who made office furniture, they came up with the Globe-Wernicke office suite, which has been in production more or less ever since. The company has been merged and acquired many times, and apparently the Indonesian Division is still at work. We recently acquired a whole Globe Wernicke Indonesian Division office suite, of which this is the table. Other items listed below.
Very large table, meant to impress. Beautiful sunburst/starburst radial/radiant veneer top in walnut. The edging and the rest of the table are mahogany. Seats 8 in large conference chairs, 12 on normal dining chairs. Has 8 slide out writing surfaces, allowing it to serve as a large multi-person desk. Has one cable access-point, not original. Top removes for transport. Mahogany oval/ellipse pedestal base.
Impressive boardroom, office, library or meeting table.
Art Deco, vintage, retro victorian lawyer/jurist style.
